According to him, the criminal came from Donetsk to Zaporizhia and laid explosives in a trash can near the playground.

At about 04:00 a.m. on Friday, the criminal moved out of the hotel in Zaporizhia to the place where the explosives were laid in order to check why it did not explode.

“He did not know that explosives would not work,” Petrov emphasized.

The law enforcers detained the suspect.

The explosives consisted of 1.5 kg of plastids, the zone of destruction from the explosion - up to 10 meters.

Residents of nearby houses were evacuated at the time of clearance of explosives.
